Hey huntr--I really am an idiot when it comes to this, and when I got into accumulating all my DEAD it came as SHNs which are now WAVs for use. Do I recall right (Tiger probably explained it to me, but I are dumber than dirt) that flacs are the replacement for WAVs? Is that what I could've gotten my, eg, download files from the DEADstore, as (I seem to recall them being there)?

Hope you don't mind some dumbass questions.

flac is the new .. and arguably better... shn is more like it ..

there is a company that makes 3rd party firmware for many mp3 players that will play back in the compressed flac format

this software is called rockbox .. should be #1 thing in a google search

Ah--so is part of it that the flacs are smaller, like the shns, BUT ready to play without 'expansion?' If so, I get it.

Sorry to bug you like this...

Hey--ain't it too bad about the OOne in the voting? [Hook]

thats what "rockbox" does .. it allows the flac files to play without "decoding" them to wav

Its a Lossless compression format like shorten but newer .. and some say more efficient

most new sources are Flac rather than shn nowadays

"Free Lossless Audio Codec"

Huh? No, seriously, I follow completely. Thanks for the time and effort. Good to know.

Yeah, I am with you 100%; but of course, I am a 68 freak, and so the OOne I 'vote' for, and even the StSt, is pre 71...

I think of those as amazing songs in that period. I know I already mentioned it 'over there' but if you have a chance, check on the OOne from 12-29-68. Jerry is unreal. Energy, man...energy. It drips with it.
